This was a two day weekend stay after work in Guanacaste. The hotel was not very full because of the season: Americans and Canadians have not yet come and Europeans have just gone. The premises were tidy and mantained. The swimming pool clear and impecable, with lots of lounge chairs in the sun and on the shade given by the...

I came to Costa Rica for the nature, but my kids enjoy the AI set up with less hiking. This was the best of both worlds. I loved seeing monkeys and iguanas all over the property. The suite was great - two stories, two bathrooms, and two balconies from which you could see the ocean and the mountains. Rooms were...

We stayed all-inclusive at the Barcelo Langosta from the last week of July 2011 to mid August and it was certainly one of our best holidays. Bear in mind that this is the low (rainy) season so the hotel wasn't too crowded with plenty of chairs around a splendid pool and very little waiting at either the bars or restaurant...

Our stay at the all-inclusive Barcelo Playa Langosta was overall a good one. Previous reviews helped us keep our expectations in check, so we weren't disappointed. High points: the entertainment staff (Joaquin and team), the lovely pool, the plethora of things to do in and around the hotel. The low points: room humidity (overwhelming moldy smell took some getting used...

We stayed at Barcelo Langosta from Feb. 14 through 28, 2011. My husband and I travelled with another couple. We all loved our vacation. We have stayed at all-inclusives in Punta Cana, Puerto Plata and Bayahibe in Dominican Republic and in Cayo Coco and Varadero, Cuba, but this was our first trip to Costa Rica. The resort is small enough...

We stayed at the Barcelo for a week in November 2010 and wished we had stayed somewhere else. Our shower plumbing was backed up and maintenance could not fix it so we spent a week taking showers standing in a tub of gross water. We must have had bed bugs because we both woke up each morning with bites on...

We are married 36 years and over 50. This was trip # 6 to Costa Rica. We stayed Sunday to Sunday. This was our first time to fly into Liberia. We'll likely try to do this onging in the future.

“We were in the building farthest from the pool, long walk but it was quiet, except when the nightime entertainment was going.”
